A pigeon landed this morning, bringing news from your good friend Lord Walder the Bold. Or is it bald? Anyway, he requested your attention regarding a problem he has. His people live on an island ruled by a fierce pirate leader, but they get along well. Neither hurts the other, peace can be smelled the air. Then two weeks ago an unknown bandit gang appeared from the badlands, and they seem to want the island for themselves. Lord Walder needs your help! I say rally up some of our military forces and pay them a visit. Do you agree?

The adventure has six subquests, for 750 XP:

  • Icon xp 100 : Clear the way to the Pirate Leader's camp.
  • Icon xp 200 : Enter the Pirate Leader's compound and defeat him and his troops
  • Icon xp 100 : Head to the badlands and clear the remaining pirate camps!
  • Icon xp 50 : Send your scouts along the island coast to find the pirate ships
  • Icon xp 100 : Defeat all three bandit camps at the wall.
  • Icon xp 200 : Fight your way inside the leader's camp and flush him out!

Note that the 5th sub-quest is automatically completed when the 6th objective is met, so you don't need to remove all three bandit camps at the wall in order to get all the experience points.

To complete the third subquest, you simply need to click on the three pirate ships around the island. As you click on them, they will disappear.
